Spider veins (telangiectasias) are very fine superficial blood vessels that can become visible under the skin as red or blue lines in a branching pattern. They are the result of elevated pressure in these small veins, as occurs with venous insufficiency, but can also be primary or related to trauma or autoimmune disorders. These veins are usually painless, but in rare occasions can cause discomfort, pain or a burning sensation.
Treatment for spider veins, or sclerotherapy, is considered cosmetic and typically not covered by insurance. Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive treatment, and involves injecting spider veins with a solution or foam that leads to the scarring of these abnormal veins. This procedure is performed in the comfort of our office, and you can return to your normal routines following sclerotherapy.
